DIY Paver Path

Within a week of moving into our current home, I decided, while perfect for us, our beautiful house desperately needed a path from the street to the front door. While warm, dry days are fine for a stroll through the lawn, during rainy or snowy days, there really is no way to get to the […]

Brass Chandelier Makeover

You know what they say about one man’s trash? Well, they didn’t lie. It’s one mama’s find on craigslist! It’s also a weekend project, because no one ever sells beautiful, perfect items on craigslist for cheap.

The built-ins above have been mostly finished for months, but just recently did I put the finishing touches on the crown molding. This is […]

DIY Jewelry Organizer

Months ago, I made this DIY jewelry organizer for my bedroom. I had purchased a tree to hang my necklaces years ago, but it was too short for most of my necklaces, which meant that they all ended up getting tangled up in a heap at the bottom. Isn’t the purpose of a jewelry organizer […]
